Diane Sweeney's last request before she died was for her car to be raffled off to one lucky guest at her funeral.

The family didn't have paperwork to finalize the car giveaway until this week when they finally announced the winner after spinning a raffle wheel on top of the VW Beetle with a portrait of Sweeney's on display.
